Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on the Environment. Task 4. Environmental Stewardship Practices, Policies, and Procedures for Road Construction and Maintenance

Many states have successfully implemented initiatives to enhance environmental stewardship and change the culture in construction and maintenance organizations to better avoid and minimize these potential impacts. One good example is Pennsylvania's Department of Transportation (PENNDOT's) SEMP (Strategic Environmental Management Program). Other more specific initiatives have been aimed at erosion and sedimentation control, improvements in energy efficiency, recycling and use of recycled materials, facility management, wetland and stream preservation, context sensitive solutions, hazardous material substitution, and pursuit of ISO certifications. The objective of this project is to produce a compendium of best practices in environmental stewardship in the areas of construction and maintenance.
